One of the best hostels we stayed at in Argentina, the staff was incredibly friendly and could give a lot of information about the city and what to do/where to go etc. There are really nice common areas and a rooftop terrace. The centre and many nice shops and restaurants in San Telmo are walking distance, subway is very close. They have good breakfast and the atmosphere in the hostel is great! Would definitely stay there again


Great hostel with amazing artwork. What more could u want?


Great hostel, amazing fiendly staff, great location, this hostel has everything you could need an ATM, information about the city, they can book your next hostel. The breakfast is great, wifi is quick. Can't think of anything bad. Stay here :)


Hostel is not so good like is it described,staff is helpful but too busy,here is always queue if you wish to ask something,too small bathrooms,poor breakfast.Dormitory in front of terrace/smoking area the worst!You can not sleep,as there always people coming to smoke/talk/drink just opposite your room window,lockers not useful-too small,overpriced drinks.Moved to another smaller,cheaper hostel,where I had great,warm chat with locals,instead of annoying travellers who do not talk to you at all..


We really enjoyed our stay at the hostel as it is really social and has a lovely terrace area. Breakfast ends at 11am which is brilliant and The scrambled eggs are a nice addition. The kitchen is too small and unequipped for the size of the hostel making it difficult to cook in the evenings.


Unfriendly staff, dirty bathrooms, small and smelly rooms


Large hostel that is not my cup of tea for socializing purposes. It has a bar, which is common in Buenos Aires, but I don't like. That said, most hostels in BA are similar.


The staf were really helpfull. The kitchen is small with limited utensils.


The staff and location are the best thing about this hostel, plus good wifi. Downsides were the lockers and small kitchen


Great hostel! Staff was very friendly and helpful. The room I stayed in was pretty hot at night even with a ceiling fan but it's an economy hostel. Not the Hilton


Great staff willing to help you at any time, great terrasse with bar, it's a colorfull and friendly place. that is a good point that there are lockers in the rooms, as the dormitories doors stay open all day long.


Close to the san telmo sunday market, a lot was going on in streets around the plade. Had a very nice privat room with balcony. Scrambled egg for breakfast


The best hostel we have stayed in south america! Great building, spacious and clean room, good breakfast inc eggs, brilliant staff and excellent rooftop bar. Location also v good in walking distance to lots of bars and restaurants. 100% recommend and would def return!


One of my favorite hostels I have ever stayed in! The staff were extremely friendly, the breakfasts were great, it was always very clean, the art was awesome, great bar to hang out at, fast Internet, etc. I stayed in 4 different rooms here. All were mostly great, but avoid dorm 6 if possible, as the fan is very noisy (6-bed room, no AC, 120 pesos). Pay the extras 10 pesos for a 6-bed room with AC & much more floor space, too. I definitely recommend staying here!

Beautiful building and well decorated. The rooms were clean - very comfortable bed. Can have scrambled eggs for breakfast too! Lovely terrace with and bar and hammocks. Staff not very engaging and when we arrived no one showed us around or even to our room. We overhead other guests beig told where to go in the city etc the atmosphere in the evenings was average. Staff didn't do much to get involved to ensure guests were having fun. Was quiet but maybe that's to do with guests at the time?


Best hostel I've been to in buenos aires. Would return. Great helpful staff.


A decent hostel in san telmo district. Staff were friendly and patiently answered my noob questions about buenos aires. They were also knowledgeable about a walking tour that was cancelled suggesting a different one for me to do, people from another hostel weren't similarly informed. Breakfast included scrambled eggs, which was a nice touch, but otherwise fairly standard fare. Would recommend this plac, has a good hostel vibe going.

We were well treated and enjoyed our stay. Many thanks!


Very social place. Perfect to travel alone. Nice staff and clean rooms.


Great hostel, staff were really helpful and the terrace was a highlight. Get an A/C room, far too hot without
